Free iOS games
Epoch 2 is a 3rd person cover shooter that uses a gesture-based control system, instead of the more common virtual joysticks. You play as the last remaining "good robot" in a post-apocalyptic world, whose mission is to rescue and protect humanity's last "princess" ("Help me, Obi-Wan, you're my only hope!"). There are plenty of upgrades, which cost in-game currency, and of course – there are in-app purchases for more credits. (pro tip: if you are going to buy anything – get the "Double Credits" and don't bother with the actual credit packs – you will get way more bang for your buck)
2. Sliding Sam
Sliding Sam is a puzzler with light-hearted animations and soundtrack. The goal is to help a penguin, named Sam, slide from point A to point B. To achieve this, you must draw a sliding path with your finger. In order to introduce more challenge, there are 3 stars on each level that you must pick up, before reaching point B, if you want to achieve the highest score. Also, the game will spice things up a bit in later stages, by adding boosts and mandatory objects that you must pick up, before finishing a level.
3. Matmi Pinball series
Pinball lovers out there would be happy to know that developer Matmi has made 3 of its Pinball games free (from $0.99 per piece). Monster Pinball and Ice Road Pinball are made for the iPhone, whereas Multiball Pinball was specifically designed for the iPad and lets you flip up to 3 balls at a time (though it now also has an iPhone version).
4. Dark Guardians
Dark Guardians is an endless runner that has you hacking and slashing at various demonic creatures as you go. Its graphical style is dark and gritty and we really like the music, which mixes symphony, rock, and hints of dubstep. The game is challenging, enjoyable, and free, so check it out.
5. "...of Fortune" JRPG series
Dotomchi has 6 games in its Fortune series and now offers 4 of them for free. The games are in SRPG (strategic RPG) style and tell the tale of a magical world with all its dragons, mystical energies, approaching evils and whatnot. If this sounds like something up your alley – check them out.
